The notion that she owns the town, trying to perfect it, and being deceptive while doing it are all traits that will get Miss Strangeworth in trouble. These traits are all things that lead to the downfall of Miss Strangeworth's roses. Trying to perfect other people is generally not taken well by others, they feel judged, as they are. This story shows why a book should never be judged by the cover, because there are often secrets hiding in the
Adela Strangeworth writes negative notes, accusing people of things, that she has no real evidence of. She wrote these letters on various-coloured paper, layered in pink, green, blue and yellow writing childish block print with a pencil. Her acts were cruel, uncalled for and ended in a member of her town destroying her most beloved possession, her rose bush. Adela Strangeworth received a letter back, in a familiar green envelope with the pencil printing. She then opened the envelope, pulled out the paper and began to silently cry while reading what said “Look out
“In confusion I looked at the Persian carpet spread on the floor, then gave my mother a long look.” By their very nature, Persian carpets are symbolic, telling stories through their patterns and designs. A comb on a Persian carpet is a symbol of cleanliness, red represents beauty, wealth, courage, luck, joy and faith. A variety of floral designs represent symbols of paradise. These are the symbols she remembers from the carpet when her family was whole; it was paradise for her. The carpet becomes a source of irony in the story.
By comparing her and Luna we can see that when she is compared to Luna, she is much more worthless to Harry than her. While a lot of reader and viewer liked Luna because of her personality, Cho Chang is often hated because of her personality. We think that as an minority Cho Chang importance are reduced and Cho Chang’s contribution in aiding Harry is overshadowed by all the other major white
I remember my grandmother's Croton plant standing in front of her bedroom window. Like a colourful, constant companion, it created a welcoming atmosphere that never waned no matter the weather outside. My grandmother has always been a nurturer, a gardener of souls. Her plants have been like children to her and when she moved to a senior’s residence, some of those plants came our way. I had always been intrigued by the Croton’s long, spiralled leaves, coloured with not only green, but bright yellows and reds.
She starts accusing people that she doesn’t like of practicing witchcraft, including Elizabeth Proctor. Elizabeth Proctor is John Proctor’s wife, and Abigail doesn 't like her because she wants to be with John, who she had an affair with. Abigail thinks that by accusing Elizabeth of witchcraft Elizabeth will be killed and then she can finally be with John. During these witch trials, many other people were accused and blamed for things that they did not do. It was mostly because of Abigail and her friends were lying about innocent people doing witchcraft.
Similarly, lines 3-10 continue on in the same manner with the author proudly admitting that he is aware of his mistress faults, yet he still desires her. Likewise, in the lines 1-2 in the "Beauty in Ugly" the author states "She's so big hearted, But not so remarkable". Therefore, Mraz like Shakespeare is fully aware that their lovers are not considered attractive by society's standards even though they appreciate them. In addition, Mraz states in line 3 "Just an ordinary humble girl". Thereby acknowledging that the girl
The sister of the protagonist Pip, Mrs. Joe Gargery is a good example, from the moment she is introduced the reader gets an awful view of her, she is represented as violent and everything in her character makes her unattractive. :” I had known, from the time when I could speak, that my sister, in her capricious and violent coercion, was unjust to me “(Great expectations,1992 ,p.53) What there can be concluded from these examples is that Dickens, the male writer, did not mean the reader to have much sympathy for these female characters. From deep within they are not good people and they deserve what they get. It seems as though Dickens generalizes the entire female population as being corrupt and impure at the core. Jane Austen on the other hand describes her own sex more careful and positive.
From the characters, we knew the Red Queen is depicted as a brutal, violent, frightened, and masculine. This can be prove from the scene Red Queen successfully snatched the crown from the White Queen’s side by the sudden attack and caused Mad Hatter’s family destroyed. One of the main reason Red Queen’s personality is brutal and violent towards people is because she lived without loved. Red Queen made others felt frightened to her. However, the White Queen is illustrated as soft and feminine but lacks direct action.
The complex details that are lacking in the play are displayed freely in the short story "A Jury of Her Peers." Adversely, the story doesn't leave much for the reader to decide how to feel, it almost tells one how to feel because the detail is so engaging. That was just the point that Glaspell was trying to make though when she decided to turn the play into a story. It was the story, rather than her play, that drove her message home; the pursuit of justice for women in a man's
In the short story “The Possibility of Evil” by Shirley Jackson uses several symbols to tell her story about Miss Strangeworth. One symbol Shirley uses in the short story is Miss Strangeworth’s roses. She devotes herself to the roses more than anything and will take care of them, letting no one take any and keeping them beautiful. They endure more meaning than just plain flowers, they consist of memories, they hold a place ever since Miss Strangeworth’s grandfather built the house she currently lives in. The roses persisted of the care by Miss Strangeworth’s grandmother, mother, and now by her.
Around the time of the witch trials, the people in Salem were very religious. Rumors were easily spread and it was nearly impossible to prove yourself innocent if people were talking about you otherwise. During the witch hysteria, innocent people were imprisoned and and executed because someone has accused them of being a witch. It is understandable that some would accuse others to save themselves from imprisonment or from possible death. However, I believe Abigail should be held responsible for the imprisonment and execution of innocent people because she threaten the girls, so they would act bewitched and she also lied about getting stabbed by a needle and making it look like as if Elizabeth Proctor did it with witchcraft.
Prejudice towards people of German, Russian, and Chinese descent is still felt today, when an ignorant person calls them a “Communist”, because of the damaging affects the Second Red Scare had. The Salem Witch Trials affected society by realizing that not all those who cry victim should be believed, especially when ulterior motives, such as the girls in The Crucible.These horrific events demonstrate how mass hysteria, mob mentality, and corrupt politicians created an atmosphere of substantial coercion that caused the destruction of innocent people’s
This kindled a powerful hatred that Abby had towards Elizabeth that would soon cause much more than a little harm. Once the idea of witchery took deep root into the hearts of the people, many were accused and arrested. Out of the selfishness of her heart, Abigail accused Elizabeth Proctor of witchcraft in an attempt to be rid of her so she could have John. She kept telling herself that she was in love with him, and she would use any opportunity to her advantage to be rid of Elizabeth. This however, would not bode well with John.
